Changing your address with the New Mexico Motor Vehicle Division is important task to complete on the moving checklist. Documents like your license and registration must at least be updated in the state's database even if your hard copy does not reflect the new address information. Whether you are an existing New Mexico resident or moving in from another state, NM law (Secs. 66-3-23 and 66-5-22 NMSA 1978) requires that the address information be updated in their automated record system within 10 days of moving.
Anyone looking to update their address in the NM DMV automated record system needs to download the change of address request form. The printed and signed form must either be:
Emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Faxed to 505-827-0977
Or mailed to MVD Data Entry Unit, P.O. Box 630, Santa Fe, New Mexico 87504
You must sign the form before you submit it otherwise your request will be rejected
